  1. Amazon Will Open Its First Brick-and-Mortar Store In New York City

    Inside is a pile of boxes and a sad looking drone.

    Ever been sitting at your computer about to purchase something off of the Internet and think to yourself, "You know what would be better? If I had to put on pants, brush my hair, leave my apartment, go aaaaall the way to crowded midtown Manhattan (easily the worst part of Manhattan, save for that strip of Lafayette Street that's nothing but construction and parking lots) and push my way past literal throngs of tourists to buy the thing I want in person instead?" Well, good news!

  2. Amazon Has a Racism Disclaimer on Tom and Jerry Cartoons, Cue the Censorship Complaints

    I hope they at least qualified for super saver shipping.

    Tech companies with deep pockets just love buying things these days, so Amazon decided to one up them all by buying .buy—all of it—for $4.6 million.

  5. All Your Hateful Amazon-Related Domain Names Belong To Amazon.com

    Brb, quickly registering AntiTheMarySue.com so no one else can hate-troll us.

    Have you ever been screwed over by Amazon? Frustrated with their ordering process? Angry about a late delivery?

    Riiiiiight.
